bike was pushed back into garage for last several hours.... it's now 1:19pm
Shorai 18AH (pb eq) has recovered to 13.17v @ 56f degree... 98amp draw
engine fired right up...

if chart in post #44 is correct... this means about 60% of total capacity still remains. even after all the start cycles this battery was subjected to this morning.

from post #44 in this thread...

1. 14.4v fully charged
2. 14.4v to 13.4v. initial drop represents about 10% of capacity.
2. drop from 13.4v to 12.4v represents 80% of total capacity.
3. below 12.4 represents 10% of remaining capacity.
Don't drop below 12.86v (80% DOD) .. battery life (number of cycles) drops dramatically,

going for a ride to see how battery recovers ...

X 2 for four cell data
